Special Notice


Facebook Requiring Migration of Shared Accounts

Facebook is requiring that all shared accounts/pages not linked to a personal Facebook account be managed through a personal account or Business Manager by February 16.

For more information, please view https://www.facebook.com/business/a/migrate_your_shared_accounts?campaign_id=964000260295625&placement=SMB_BusMgrMigrate

We are asking that College Facebook pages be migrated to Business Manager, not a personal account. This follows our existing guidelines and is in alignment with Facebook’s recommendations.

For information on how to migrate to Business Manager, please view https://www.facebook.com/business/a/business-manager-setup

Please grant at least two people access to your page in Business Manager, following existing guidelines. You can adjust permissions given to each person within Business Manager.

If you have questions about how to migrate your page, please contact Amber Stark in the Office of Marketing and Communications at Ext. 2774 or amber_stark@owens.edu.

Online social media outlets offer amazing opportunities to share knowledge, connect with others and build excitement. Owens Community College supports participation in these communities.

Creating Social Media Pages and Accounts

If employees want to create a presence for their departments, events or groups on social media, including Facebook and Twitter, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at 567-661-2774 before starting the page(s) for tips and advice. The Office of Marketing and Communications encourages College departments to be involved in social media and wants to support those efforts.

Please also review the College's Social Media guidelines, which apply to:

  • the maintenance of College (office, department, program, school, event, etc.) social media accounts, including Facebook and Twitter.
  • participation on public sites or your personal site(s) when posting on behalf of Owens.
